Hazel's Top Books to get stuck into in 2016.

As the New Year dawns on us, we need a good reason to stay in and get stuck in to a good book to keep us out of the bars, shops, off the online shopping world and get the brain box working. We can't just watch Christmas movies all year round! Well, we can but that would be daft.

Top 10 Christmas Movies - In my opinion. 2015

Top 10 Christmas Movies - In my opinion. 2015

Every Christmas Eve in the Butterfield household we have a movie and luscious food night with one of my best friends and her bloke. We then get a tad tipsy and stage a Santa break in for the kids. Dress up, take photos of catching him in the act nicking a shot of baileys, eating his treats left out by the kids, using the loo etc.. Then excitedly show the kids in the morning.

Grape Molasses - An accidental find that has forced me to discover it's many qualities.

So I have this amazing Turkish place that I regularly go to and quite frankly what they can do with a simple onion and pomegranate molasses is delicious. So I have been a molasses fan for some time and had tracked it down, although this was about 2 years ago and since then it has been easy to get hold of, even in your local M&S. But.... On the usual online order a few months ago, they had run out and the men in blue had sent Grape Molasses as an alternative which I accepted and duly left in the cupboard, until now.
